Paringa Shiraz South Australia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A shiraz with a lush, ripe palate that also has excellent texture. There are also notes of dark berry and spice in structured and dense finish and aromas. Very fine, integrated tannins and a nice spiciness on the finish. Must be one of the best values in the marketplace.

Fruit for these wines comes partly from our Estate managed vineyards at Red Hill plus fruit purchased from a number of carefully selected vineyards from other sub-regions of the Mornington Peninsula. “The quality of these wines are often equal to many other vineyards best” (James Halliday) The fruit for these wines is from our mature low yielding Estate grown vineyards. A combination of vine age and careful vineyard management produces our best quality fruit. Between 30% and 50% new French Oak combined with the powerful fruit flavours produce the unique Paringa "style" upon which our reputation has been built. Read less

Wow this is awful. i remember when this was good about four years ago, but now it's overly oaked with intense dislocated spice and fruit that attempts to be something it's not, this is not accounting for the serious heat on the palette (14.6%!!!) Maybe it will even out after a few hours... let's see...

Supple, polished and appealing for its dark, brooding, licorice-accented boysenberry pie flavors, complete with baked dough notes on the enticing finish. Drink now through 2014. 30,000 cases made. -HS

This Shiraz offers so much more than just upfront fruit. Sure, there are blackberries and spice, but you'll also appreciate the fine backbone of acidity, and just the lightest touch of tannin.
